New Middletown police say a man accused of making a threat to a Jewish center on social media has been arrested on telecommunications harassment and aggravated menacing charges. 

20-year-old James Reardon Junior allegedly posted a video last month of a man shooting a semi-automatic rifle with the caption: "Police identified the Youngstown Jewish Family Community shooter as local white nationalist Seamus O'Rearedon." The post was tagged the Jewish Community Center of Youngstown. Authorities say the account was Reardon's.
